This card is for Cute Card Thursday's weekly challenge, and this week's challenge was to create a Thank You card for a teacher. I knew immediately I wanted to use School Riley from Hanna Stamps. I created a faux word border using a tutorial from Split Coast Stampers to go above and below the "chalk board". I wanted to keep the background neutral, so as to resemble a classroom wall, like mine.


Paper: Bazzill tan, black, and white. SU! Dusty Durango

Ink: SU! Basic Brown (combined with SU! DD cardstock to create faux wood), Colorbox Dragonfly Black pigment

Stamps: School Riley from Hanna Stamps

Accessories: Offray "Ruler" ribbon, White Sakura gel pen, dimensional tape, Copic/Prisma markers to color image


  1. Adorable card Jen! I just love the chalkboard and little Riley. Great job.

  2. Great ribbon Jen! LOL! I love this card, it's so you! He's adorable against that blackboard and what a fun wood technique. I need to try that one out. ;) Happy Sunday my dear!

  3. Thanks ladies! i could not have made this card without your help!
